A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 60-year-old man died following a "disturbance" in Manchester city centre.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said a "group of people" were involved in the incident, which saw officers called out to Dantzic Street on Saturday at just after 8pm.

The man had died at the scene.

Superintendent Dave Kehoe, from GMP's Serious Crime Division, said: "This was a tragic incident where a 60-year-old has lost his life and our thoughts are with his family and friends who are understandably devastated.

"A cordon is in place and officers are currently at the scene whilst we piece together exactly what happened and who was involved.

"The area was very busy at the time and a number of people may have seen what happened. Even the smallest information could assist with our investigation."

Officers are following up a number of lines of inquiry regarding what happened, a police spokesman said.
